10 Celebrities Who Pulled The Infamous “Don’t You Know Who I Am?!” Line

Spencer Cain

Being a celebrity certainly has its perks, but sometimes, famous folks get treated just like the rest of us. Case in point: Reese Witherspoon chose to whip out the celebrity card, allegedly stating the ultimately cocky line: “Do you know my name?” and “You’re about to find out who I am” over the weekend, when her husband Jim Toth was booked for a DUI over the weekend (she was arrested for disorderly conduct.) As it were, it didn’t really matter who she was, as the police officer went right ahead and arrested them.

Reese isn’t the first famous person to spewed this entitled line, as celebrities have been pulling the “do you know who I am?!” card since, well, always. It’s usually used when they’re in a compromising situation—be it getting kicked out of a nightclub or being denied a discount on pricey attire. Everyone from Tara Reid to R&B diva Diana Ross have been guilty when it comes to namedropping their own names in order to nab some special treatment.

In light of incidents like these popping up in recent headlines, we decided to compile 10 of the most memorable (or completely entitled, whichever) “Don’t you know who I am?!” moments.
